Nurturing good pupil leaders is an important element of St Mary’s success as a school. Our pupils readily take on leadership roles: our Peer Mediators, School Council, Eco-leaders and Collective Worship Team contribute to our direction with confidence and success. We are very proud of them; they are a strength of St Marys.
Roles and Responsibilities
· Act as an ambassador for the school both in and out.
· Plan, organise and promote fundraising events.
· Represent pupil voice.
· Work alongside the senior leadership team to continue to improve our school
· Help the LGC to make decisions on behalf of the pupils.
· Meet regularly to feedback to the senior leadership team and the LGC about key decisions.
Pupil Advocates: our Year 6 pupils are encouraged to take greater responsibility and to contribute positively both to the school and wider community. They also attend meetings as required (with the Headteacher and Leadership Team). We have Head and Deputy Girls and Boys, Lunchtime Leaders, Peer Mediators, Eco-Leaders, Collective Worship Leaders, Task Force, Librarians and Prefects. To apply for a Pupil Leadership position, children are required to write a supporting letter of what skills and attributes they would bring to the role. Expectations are high in order that children understand the process of recruitment and the commitment and professional conduct expected, when in a position; thereby setting them up for future life.
